    We have lost a very sweet priest. One of my most precious memories, other than his love and compassion for his parishioners, is the first time I heard him sing Silent Night in his native language at the Christmas Vigil Mass at Holy Spirit in Kountze. What a heavenly sound. I will never forget it. Rest In Peace Father Duc.
